Allotment Update!

After some #ROBSON1 campaigning earlier this afternoon (for the upcoming Liberton/Gilmerton by-election), we managed to sneak a couple of very pleasant hours down at the Allotment ;-)

It really is bursting into colour/flower now - better late-than-never! - and the weather held out for us, with no sign of the threatened-rain?

I do reckon that we're still about 3-4weeks behind normal growing schedules, but things are really starting to catch up.

The pond was particularly active, with two pretty large frogs being spotted during the time we were all there!

And, on the veg-front, all the main crops are now going reasonably well, if not a bit belatedly:
  •  potatoes
  • broad beans
  • onions
  • spinach
  • beetroot
  • runner beans
  • peas
  • & strawberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants

I can just about taste the lot right now ;-)
